1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Golden yellow, brief bubbly white head. Shandy-ish through and through, with a funny ginger ale aroma and flavour, and an artificial sweetness that does not appeal to me.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
11.16 oz bottle. Poured a clear golden color. Head was very bubbly and white. It reduced almost immediately to a thin film. Aroma was of paper mache, cereal grain, graham cracker, and some lemon. Sweet on the tongue with carbonation on the higher end of the spectrum. Tasted of artificial lemon, stale corn bread with honey, and a bit of cardboard. Truly awful.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2008 This came in an 11.16 oz. bottle. What does that mean? The body is lightly hazy bright gold with a white head. The aroma is light dandelions with some musky perfume. The taste is nasty old canned pears with some strange metal. The body is lightly carbonated with a light body. There are some notes of nasty magazine paper. A sour finish with some dried cranberry notes, but not in a good way. I donít know how else to describe this fairly disgusting concoction.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
By "Farmhouse Ale", I think they meant "crappy, possibly infected pale lager (or golden ale)". Adding insult to insult, if you happen to buy a regular package of this, they "generously" give you 8 bottles instead of 6. Poured clear bright golden with a short-lived cap of white head. The aroma is just awful.. corn, honey, and grains covered by a huge dose of ugly sour fruits and vegetables. The flavor was only slightly better.. it supplemented the honey and corn with pale malts at the core.. sour light fruits and something of a glob of pepper and cardboard surround.. tacky cardboard, honey, and sour fruit finish. Light-bodied and very poorly balanced on the palate.. just bad.

smells horrible. Doesnít taste much better. Not a bad beer, but taste about like an MGD or Coors with lemon. Oh well, at least I only bought one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Musty grapefruit rind aroma. Cloudy yellow orange with minimal head. Slightly musty and sweet orange malt flavor. Very saison-like - a good drink.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Bennanís in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden blonde brew with a fast dissolving fizzy white head that leaves behind no film, nor any ring. Aroma of light multi grain malt, a touch of citrus, some yeast and corn grits. Taste is light to medium bodied, well carbonated with a fruity corn and citrus flavor. Finish is slightly metallic, semi-sweet with a slight pear and corn aftertaste.

Hazy golden yellow color with a quickly fading head. Musty aroma of grain and doughy malt. Flavor of crisp grains, pale fruit and a yeasty acidity. Medium bodied with a quick, lightly spicy finish.

Thanks to Tytoanderso for sharing. Yellow color. Lightly acidic aroma, which is farmhousey enough. A hint of yeast in the flavor with light corn and a hint of hops.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Musty aroma of oregano, slightly moldy bread dough and sweet grain. Pours hazy light yellow. Flavor is like an amped up pale lager. Malt liquor like corn sweetness. Medium bodied on the palate with a decent carbonation. Finishes watery and with a grain (corn?) sweetness.
